ZURICH, May 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ABB announced today that Thomas & Betts Corporation, an ABB subsidiary, has commenced a consent solicitation to ask the holders of its $250 million 5.625% senior unsecured bonds due 2021 for their consent to change certain terms of the bonds.

The consent solicitation will expire at 5:00 P.M., New York City time, on May 31, 2012, unless extended or earlier terminated.     

Regardless of the outcome of the consent solicitation, ABB Ltd will guarantee the bonds.
